Our two hero products will have your skin summersoft no matter what the season. Whether dehydrated from too much sun, or too much time in central heating.
An amazing ritual is to take a warm shower or bath and melt the Idan oil in the warm water. Enjoy the warming aphrodisiac qualities of the Tuberose as you massage into clean damp skin, head to toe. (Skin absorbs more moisture when it is not fully dry.) When skin is dry take a small scoop of Shea butter and massage into problem areas like feet, cracked heels, elbows and knees. Wrap yourself in a fluffy robe and some cotton socks and you will wake up feeling brand new. Repeat weekly.
IVORY SHEA BUTTER (120ml)
Raw. One ingredient. Ethically sourced. Fragrance-Free. Vegan
Shea butter is the ultimate African beauty secret. Used for centuries by women to protect and regenerate the skin, its potency lies in its naturally high concentration of A and E.
A multi-purpose moisturiser for all skin types, it can be used on dry areas, stretch marks, scars, as a nappy balm, or as a base for making your own natural cosmetics.
Shea Butter is known for its high content of fatty acids and its naturally occurring content of Vitamins A and E. Traditionally used as a “cure all” balm and with women in Africa using it on everything from stretch marks and scars to babies' bums. An excellent natural alternative to petroleum jelly. All you need is a small amount, let it melt between your hands and apply everywhere - body, face, feet, and hands.

IDAN OIL (100ml)
Idan is the Yoruba word for magic, which is the only word to describe our sublime moisturising oil. Made with natural, cold pressed coconut oil into which a Tuberose flower has been immersed, ensuring the wonderful scent of this night-blooming flower is absorbed naturally into the oil by a traditional African process of enfleurage.
As well as smelling divine, Tuberose has naturally warming and aphrodisiac qualities. We love to use this for absolutely everything a body oil to leave-in hair conditioner, or if we are feeling really indulgent, slathering it head to toe before bed and rinsing off in the morning for truly silky fragranced skin. Some customers have even been known to decant it and use it as a solid perfume. Let us know what new uses you discover!

I’ve been using the Idan oil for my hair for years & I am still just as much in love with it from when I first tried it. lifetime customer right here.
love & light!
I’m using the Shea butter as a moisturiser and for extra dry, irritated or cracked skin on me and my kids and it has been great!
The oil smells beautiful and leaves your skin really soft.
I definitely will be ordering these products again!
Hi I’m not aware that the gift has arrived at its destination in Birmingham UK. I just checked with my sister in law, who the gift is for, and it not yet arrived. Do you know otherwise? Regards Carmel Lister
I don’t know how I stumbled on this brand, but I’m so glad I did! The oil is stunning - sinks in beautifully and I am obsessed with the smell. Tuberose is one of my favourite scents so it felt like destiny finding it! I ended up decanting a small amount as a ‘solid perfume’ to carry with me for the day. Shea butter was new to me, but has been great on my dry elbows - I’m still learning all the wonderful uses for it.
I ordered the butter and the best seller oil and they are both beautiful, the oil is silky soft and yes it is solid but its supposed to be as is coconut oil based, the flower inside makes the scent sooo subliminally delicious and my husband loves it, the butter though I dont use it on its own but I melted it and made it into a lotion with aloe vera, vaseline, olive oil and essential oil such as ylang ylang, it is like butter on my skin, I love it and even gave my 10 year old daughters to put it on their skin in the winter months.
